    I bought Olympus OM-D E-M10 that comes with 14-42mm EZ lens. I also have Olympus ED 14-150mm lens.

    When the first time I got it, when I attached the 14-42mm EZ lens, the screen went black but you can see all other indicators (picture counts etc) if you look in the viewfinder. I unscrewed and screwed it back couple of time and it didn't work so Amazon sent in a replacement for it.

    On the second camera, I have been switching back and forward between 14-42mm and 14-150mm lens (every two weeks or so). Then a couple days ago, the camera won't recognize the 14-42mm, when I attached the lens, I got black screen (but can see the indicators on the screen). I kept on trying and it wouldn't do the trick. Then I reattached 14-150mm back and it worked just fine, I tried several times to detach and reattach and no problem.

    Is this mean I'm having camera problem or lens problem?

    Do you turn the camera off to change lenses, then switch it back on? My understanding is that the camera should boot up with the new lens installed each time.

    Is it "clicking in" the whole way?
